This hotel is conveniently located off I-75 and near the Mall at University Town Center and Main Street at Lakewood Ranch. Check in was fast. The room was spacious and the king bed was comfortable. The room was clean. The breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, sausage patties; make your own pancakes, cereal and pastries. The breakfast is not great, but... More

Stayed there for multiple nights over Christmas period. The overall decor, layout and "feeling" of the property is excellent for a hotel in its price category. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms are not large, but are well designed to make best use of space, and were clean! Plenty of parking and great access to Lakewood Ranch, I75 and... More

The BED! The hotel was ok but the bed was terrible. The bed was rock hard with no give, the pillows were non supportive, the sheets did not stay on the bed and half way through the night we were sleeping on the mattress cover. I assumed that Fairfield being part of Marriott the beds would be good I was... More

Jtrilling, Thank you for your review and we sincerely apologize for not exceeding your expectations. As a Marriott we are required to use a specific bed type and replace them every 6 years. I would appreciate it if you could notify the front desk, GM or I on what room you were in, if you have not already done so,... More

Its a Fairfield Inn, so not easy to give 5-stars. But within this category of hotel this is one of the best. I felt my one night stay there was very comfortable with good location, fresh rooms, reasonable breakfast and so on. Lakewood Ranch is a nice area.

We have stayed here before for soccer tournaments, and we really like the Fairfield Inns for their service and consistency. However, in this particular instance, I'm writing to compliment the staff for the their understanding and willingness to work with us. We were unable to come down and missed our cancellation window. While I didn't expect to not pay the... More

It’s located in a busy area and yet when you turn off the main road and onto the property it feels like you leave that hectic world behind and step into a peaceful, relaxing environment. The hotel looks like its brand new, was spotlessly clean, our room was large and quite comfortable, especially the bed. We weren’t bothered by any... More

Located in close proximity to I-75, a brand-new shopping mall with great eateries and the Sarasota Airport, this property is great for business or pleasure. The hot breakfast buffet offered a good deal of variety. Hotel was clean and quiet and very reasonable.

The title says it all. NASTY ODORS! If you don't smell harsh industrial cleaning products when you first walk in the room, it's a mold or mildew smell. My husband still had the hotel room smell in his nose after we left. Not a place we'll be back to.

On behalf of our entire staff and management team, I want to apologize for the strong smell you experienced in your room. We are anxious to identify... More

I stayed at this property for business travel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. My room was quiet and very clean. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants and grocery close by. I travel often and don't write reviews but this was an exceptional stay and will stay on next visit to the area.

This was our third stay. Lynn is very helpful and friendly. The hotel is very clean. Very comfortable beds. Great location. Restaurants, shopping, and Walgreens very nearby. Others just a short drive. New mall within 10 minutes.
